Software Review:SPG ColorWorks:Web

A Graphic tool designed around the Web! Thankfully, SPG thought of that and made the toolbars dockable. By right clicking on the toolbar buttons on top of the ColorWorks:Web screen, you're able to dock all the toolbars with a click of the mouse. They can also be resized and moved around the screen if they get in your way, or by keeping them docked they are instantly available with one click, dropping down until you choose a tool, then disappearing back into the menu with another click of the mouse. The next slick utility you'll probably find yourself using is the built-in image browser. This isn't a separate program that takes forever to load, it's actually a part of ColorWorks:Web which enables you to quickly locate and view each image that is contained in a directory which you choose; thumbnails of each image are presented (See Figure 1).

Any image seen in the Image Browser may be dragged-and-dropped into the ColorWorks:Web work area. This is a fast and easy manner in which to locate and edit the graphic that's hidden in that directory somewhere! How many times have you been working on a re-design of your site, and needed a local copy of every image on the site? Of the boss may have said, "I want you to work on so-and-so's page," and you had to download each image manually?
